Tales of the Forgotten North!

Join us in Elsdon, one of the most historic villages of Northumberland National Park for an afternoon to stir your imagination and spark your creativity…..

Chris Jones, Historic Environment Officer for Northumberland National Park, will begin the afternoon talking about the wealth of history and archaeology of Elsdon. This will be followed by a story created and told by professional storyteller Pascale Konyn, inspired by the history and archeology of Elsdon, and drawing on Celtic traditions. There will be an opportunity for discussion/Q & A and, of course refreshments to be consumed.  To finish off the afternoon Chris Jones will lead a short walk of the village.

The village of Elsdon holds many mysteries.  Could it be that the clues to those secrets are there to be found – if only we look closely enough?  Storytelling Pascale Konyn has created a story using the known archaeology, history and the existing mysteries of Elsdon and it’s landscape.  In this event, join Pascale weaving history and mystery in the the present. journey into the past and hear an epic wonder tale of Elsdon and it’s transformations, that take us from the Iron Age through Medieval times to the Nineteenth Century and the present day.
